Allmusic4.5/5 stars[2]

Stewart Mason of Allmusic stated, "Sonny Phillips' third and final album for Prestige, coming just over a year after his first, shows the soul-jazz organist moving in a somewhat funkier direction than his first two efforts. The roiling title track actually has an edge of menace to it, an idea his other albums never even entertained".[2]
